Sometimes you’ve just got to do something fancy.

One of my favourite designs from the 31 Day Challenge was my butterflies. This was an awesome excuse to do some more. I also tried another technique I’ve not done before – saran wrap. Once I found out that saran wrap is called cling film in the UK I was well in there! I started with a coat of Rimmel Pop Your Pink, and then mixed in/cling-filmed on Nails Inc Soho Silver and Uptown Glamour to get this kind of spangly pink affair. After that had dried I painted on the butterflies with black and white Primark nail art pens. I hadn’t originally intended to add loads of gems but I saw this design by Glowstars and then I just went crazy! These gems came with the Primark pens.

Everything is better with gems.
